SOTD MONDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 15, 2021

It’s very nice to be home! 13 hours of backseat driving all the way from TN to PA is enough to unsettle any man! There were a large number of icy road conditions signs from the ice storms of the day before throughout VA which didn’t help matters, but we finally arrived home. The first thing I did upon awakening was to grab my Manhattan Cutlery razor, my A&E software, my Muhle 2011 R41 safety razor, and my Alpha Shaving 400 Tribute brush fitted with a hybrid knot ferrule. The mug and dome shaves easily put the baby to bed, and left me refreshed, clean and velveteen smooth! The post shave skin feel from the A&E Shaving Butter and Post-Shave Serum was the icing on the cake.

RAZOR: Manhattan Cutlery French Point (Mug), 2011 Muhle R41 Weber Handle (Dome)
BLADE: Wilkinson Sword DE
PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
BRUSH: Alpha Shaving 400 Tribute with Hybrid Knot Ferrule
CREAM: A&E Shaving Butter
POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with A&E Post-Shave Serum.

Brush: Semogue Torga-C3 Finest Mistura 22/49
Soap: TFS Mandarino Tachibana
Razor: Timeless SSSlim OC on custom olive wood handle
Blade: Personna Platinum Chrome (15)
ASL: TFS Mandarino Tachibana

An excellent shave. :biggrin:

That was the final shave of my Timeless Slim trial (30 consecutive shaves). It's definitely a superb razor, and it's jumped onto the podium... but I'm not sure if it's going to push the Worlds Finest Safety Razor off the Number 1 spot. I'll use the WFSR next shave and make my decision then.

After 25 shaves with my latest Omega Mixed Midget I decided to give it a rest and give my Semogue Mistura some love. Wow! Night and day. I think I can safely say that the Semogue Mistura is the best brush I own (and that's saying A LOT). If only I could get the Semogue in an 18mm knot it would be perfect (for me).


Happy shaves guys. :cornut:
